Here’s what we’re celebrating the end of Dry January with this week…
Köl Story Bro by Brewhall Beer Co.
Kolsch • 5.0% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
This traditional German-style lagered ale by Vancouver’s Brewhall took home gold at the 2019 B.C. Beer Awards in the Pale German Beer category. This clean and crisp kolsch boasts notes of bread, biscuit and light fruit. Now in cans, Köl Story Bro is available at select liquor stores throughout the province.
Epiphany by Category 12 Brewing
Belgian-style sour ale • 5.8% ABV • 500 mL bottles
The newest release Central Saanich’s Category 12 Brewing’s Barrelholder Series is this barrel-aged red sour ale. “Epiphany is a meticulously blended ode to venerable Belgian styles: a complex barrel aged sour two and a half years in the making is softened with another barrel-aged sour a year younger, allowing the mixed fermentation to coalesce into an aromatic celebration of soft tartness and smooth complexity. Yelling “Eureka!” after consumption completely optional.”
Are You Suggesting Coconuts Migrate? by Backcountry Brewing
Imperial stout • 9.0% ABV • 50 IBU • 473 mL tall cans
This Monty Python-themed coconut and chocolate imperial stout by Squamish’s Backcountry Brewing is very apropos given the recent passing of Terry Jones. Conditioned on cocoa nibs from East Van Roasters and copious amounts of toasted coconut carried by way of a fully-laden African swallow. Now available on draught, fills, and in cans at the brewery, as well as at select private retailers.
